Greetings to the people of the Virgin Islands. As you may be aware, the situation in Cane Garden Bay Tortola that involves Power Boaters infringing on the swimming area and anchoring their vessels on the shoreline has been a problem to the beach goers and the community. This occurrence is dangerous and is also a potentially fatal accident waiting to occur. The Government of the Virgin Islands has been working diligently to remedy this issue and I am proud to say that this problem will be no more by the beginning of August.
Minister for Natural Resources, Labour and Immigration, Honourable Vincent Wheatley, Chief Executive Officer in the Recovery and Development Agency, Mr. Paul Bayly and Mr. William Driver of Sand Dollar Marine Consultants signed a contract inclusive of installation of 26 Sea Markers throughout the Virgin Islands
The Labour Department will be renamed to the Department of Labour and Workforce Development as the Government of the Virgin Islands moves to improve labour relations and develop the Territory’s workforce.
